I'm not sure what I'm supposed to write for my very first post ever but Shane told me that it doesn't matter. He's the one who told me I could talk to my friends here after I said I wished there was a way to do that not involving email. I don't mind email so much but I know that Will does so many things here with his friends I thought it would be fun to take part. Not that I'm trying to be like my son or anything. He knows that. I hope.

Shane helped me with those pictures (oh, he says the correct term is "icons." Excuse me!) by taking some of my photos and putting them in the computer. There's a process. And he's going to help me "friend" people. I've never heard the word friend used as a verb before, as in "I friended someone." Isn't that funny? I suppose it isn't if you're used to all of this, but I find it amusing. I asked Shane if he uses his blogger(?) a lot and he said he doesn't write in it but reads everything. I think I'd like to write in mine as well as find things to read.

I hope that it's all right for me to "friend" those of you I've met before. I'll be at a loss when Shane's not helping me out so I also hope people won't mind me asking questions.

Okay, I am getting ready to send this. Shane says I should preview then send so I can see my mistakes first. But I don't mind making mistakes as long as it's not some terrible rule I'm breaking.

And what in the world is a community? I know what they are in the outside world but they sound more like clubs to me here. Is that right? I have a lot to learn.

I am most honored that you would 'friend' my journal, my lady. And allow me to be the first to bid you welcome.

Thank you so much, dear. I'm glad you don't mind.

Will told me what a help you were to him recently and I have to thank you for that as well.

Thanks are never needed between friends, Lady Inez. It was my honor to fulfill in some small way the oaths I have made to my friends.

I hope you had a joyful...Christmas, I believe it is called.

You are so sweet! I understad why my son's so fond of you. No one's ever called me Lady before.

Yes, that's what it's called, and it was absolutely lovely! I invited a bunch of my friends over to join me and Shane and we exchanged gifts and I made them a big dinner. Will stopped by with more gifts and spent a little time with me. He showed me the necklace you gave him. Did you really make that?

I have a small talent for jewelry making, but nothing such as my father, Thranduil, possesses.

Among my kin the celebration is called Yule or Mid-Winter Feast. Such gifts are commonly given then, something small and made by the giver with thought to how it may be useful to the recipient.

That is such a thoughtful tradition. I wish we could focus on gifts that are made. It seems so much more loving and personal.

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 05:07 am (UTC)(link)
It is truly an ancient tradition and may not well suit in this time.

There's so much commercialization surrounding the holidays nowadays. I think I'm going to make all my presents next year and I don't care if it suits the time. I think it's lovely.

[identity profile] 2008-12-31 07:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I cannot but think, my lady, that any gift you gave would already be of the heart and well thought.

[identity profile] 2008-12-31 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, honey, you are such a sweetheart. You can make me blush just by giving me a compliment. Thank you.

[identity profile] 2009-01-01 12:02 am (UTC)(link)
You are most welcome, Lady Inez, although I speak only the truth.

[identity profile] 2009-01-01 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
You know, Will used to talk to me about you after he fell in love with you. He said that you could make something as simple as the truth sound like a love song and I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about. But I could see why he'd say that.

*blushes* Your son has the soul and tongue of a bard, lady.

[identity profile] 2009-01-01 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
It would seem you do, too.

You know, I'm very happy that I'm going to have a chance to get to know you better.

[identity profile] 2009-01-01 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
And I you, my lady.

When next your son come to visit me in my wood, perhaps you would come as well?

[identity profile] 2009-01-02 07:23 am (UTC)(link)
I would love that! But only if you're sure you wouldn't mind me tagging along.

[identity profile] 2009-01-03 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
You are always welcome, my lady.

[identity profile] 2009-01-03 06:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you very much, dear. You are a delight.

[identity profile] 2009-01-04 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
I look much forward to coming to know you as a friend all of your own as well as the mother and mother under law of my dearest friends.

[identity profile] 2009-01-06 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
I'm happy about the chance to do that, too. I feel very lucky that I can get to know Will's friends on my own and he doesn't mind it.

[identity profile] 2009-01-06 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
If he should come to mind, I believe I can persuade him other.

[identity profile] 2009-01-08 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
Now, how would you do that?

[identity profile] 2009-01-08 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
*grins charmingly*
I have my methods.

[identity profile] 2009-01-08 05:56 am (UTC)(link)
There are times your son listens well.
